This is a review of Rocket Science Sports Speed Skin Suit. Kevin Crossman (t3coach1) of www.T3Coaching.NET takes us on a closer look of the suit being worn by Patrick O'Keeffe (pokeeffe) & Paul Fronhofer (pfron), top age-groupers from New York. Patrick is a 70.3 World Qualifier, and Paul is a Kona Qualifier. Great looks are filmed underwater as well as above water.

Patrick, Paul and Kevin share some very important thoughts to consider when purchasing a Speed Suit.

Notes

Ease to put on

  

The suit goes on in under 2 minutes - at least no longer than it takes to put a wetsuit on.  

Comfort

 

This suit is not restrictive at all and has full range of motion.  For those wearing wristwatches, a little water seepage does occurs.

Buoyancy

 

With our testing, this suit did not seem to provide extra buoyancy (this is not it's goal) though you may feel that is does provide some buoyancy effect.

Performance  For this test, this user was able to shave off 1-2 seconds/100 yards with a decreased stroke rate and decreased exertion.

Ease to take off

   

This suit has a 'quick release' zipper to unlock the zipper to easily pull off.  Overall, this suit is very quick to take off.

Cosmo Factor*

 

Nice solid black suit with a small logo.

Overall

  

A great suit that, under these test conditions, allowed improvement in efficiency.
